RRO Lift noise? Anyone else

I had the lift installed last week, so I probably have fewer than 50 miles on it. However, I am noticing some noises....

From the front passenger side, I notice an intermittent creaking. Doesn't always do it. Most times, it will happen when I slowly accelerate from a stop. I emailed RRO and they suggested greasing the sway bar. I have to try that


Additionally, there is now a chirping/squeak from what appears to be inside the cabin. A search shows me that others have a similar issue...but mine started after the lift went in.... so who knows


Admittedly, I have a personality type that fixates on squeaks...but these are certainly real noises


anyone else?

Yes. I am hearing a slight chirping noise inside the cabin ever since RRO Lift installed. Seems to only be at highway speeds normally. I'll look into it, and please let me know if you figure out how to fix it.

I should have replied sooner to my own post. We were able to find the issue. Turns out that the bolt on the upper control arm has this metal tab....the tab was rubbing on the arm causing that creaking.

What's interesting, is that I was having this chirping noise in the car...like a squeak....anyway, it went away once the suspension issue was fixed!

I bent it back so it wouldn't touch the control arm. It's on both sides of the front

Ugh this creaking noise came back, and out of where too. I'm so frustrated with this lift
